Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by. My name is Gloria Sun (she/they), and I am studying Architecture at Wellesley College. Even though I am a student now, I consider myself a lifelong learner.
As a Christian, I blog about my life experiences and periods of personal growth. I do not have everything figured out though, and I am certainly far from perfect. This blog has become a place for me to break down the stigma of living with a host of different mental health challenges, as well as a place for me to share the insights led via my various interests.
For example, my faith and queerness are not mutually exclusive. I identify as non-binary and pansexual. I am in the process of exploring the various intersections of my identity.
I am passionate about environmental stewardship, which has led me to adopt a lifestyle of simplicity and sustainability.
I have a deep love for words – novels, drama, and most of all, poetry. Periodically, this website will be a platform for my creative work – written, visual, and musical.
In my personal life, I am the oldest of five. I have a younger sister, Joyce, and three younger brothers: Albert, Eric, and Oliver. Collectively, we call ourselves GJAEO! I’m the proud owner of a big black FIV+ emotional support cat, Jet Hemingway, too.
I also believe that my life would be so much duller without the gift of music. I am primarily an amateur violinist, and although I have been classically trained, I enjoy music from all time periods, and from all corners of the globe. This includes but is not limited to: Western Classical, Modern, Rock, Jazz, World Music, R&B, and some Pop. In addition, I have received musical educations in piano, choir/voice, flute, viola, and erhu, and I am now teaching myself some basic guitar. I have also had some experience with conducting, composing, arranging, and improvising. In my free time, I am always down for musicals, string quartets, and symphony/concerto marathons.
In a nutshell, I am an idealist who is perpetually confused by the universe.
A couple more things: INFJ, ABC, leftie, and I can lick my elbow.
That’s all you need to know, for now. I invite you to sit with me in my Requiem.
- (Especially in the Roman Catholic Church) a Mass for the repose of the souls of the dead.
- A musical composition setting parts of a requiem Mass, or of a similar character.
- An act or token of remembrance.
Middle English, from Latin (first word of the introit of the requiem mass), accusative of requies rest, from re- + quies quiet, rest.
From the Oxford and Merriam-Webster dictionaries.
